It’s amazing video. Great. I’m studying at London now so this video show me some popular places. I hope I’ll visit these places soon. Moreover, I can learn many new structures, it is helpful to improve my vocabulary. However I want to ask you what’s the meaning of word : “take-away”

Hello Tina Nguyen

In this context, 'takeaway' is food cooked in a restaurant or shop that you eat in a different place (for example, at home, in the office or in a park).

Dear Team, I really recognise all you are doing for us and all of us have already appreciated and thanked you about. It's a key issue for me that has to do only with the '' Word on the Street ''course,so I'd like although to note something for your future arrangements, as I know you are preparing new stuff.
Please reduce both the duration as well as the volume of the background music in the videos!!
This isn't simply ''introductory music''.Many times it runs before, during and after the words and the dialogues, adding nothing else, but confusion to us, trying to catch the daily and fast pronunciation of the speakers.
Speaking only for me, and without meaning to be excessive or rude, sometimes I feel a headache during the listening because of the music.
Mind that I love music and I'm a musician myself.
Ever thankful to all of you,

Hello nikoslado

I've made a note. Thanks for your feedback!

All the best

This website is really helpful. Ashlie said "I' ve left my pursue on the London ", can I also said " I've forgotten..... "?
It's that ok?

Hi Veny,

Yes, that's also fine. Glad you find the site helpful!

Best wishes,

Hi the team,
I'm sorry but I don't understand "go mate". What does that mean ?

Hi Stephane,

The phrase 'there/here you go' is a fixed expression. It means the same as 'there/here you are' and we use it when we are giving something to someone or meeting their request in some way. In this case Stephen is 'giving' the visitors the view they want: Look, there you go, it's the Houses of Parliament.

'Mate' here is just a friendly term. It means the same as friend but is more informal.
